Found this fantastically nerdy response to one of those Rocher truffles, including this diagram:


Ksusha introduced me to Ferrero Rocher chocolates a few days ago. My first reaction after biting into it was “this would make a great model of the Earth!” (Well, maybe that was my second reaction. My first reaction was “tasty!”)

Thus, it was necessary to slice one in half so that I could take a photo for labelling. Alas, the crust-to-mantle thickness ratio isn’t quite right, and there isn’t a clear differentiation between the upper and lower mantle. Now to go eat what remains of my Earth model. Hopefully it’s not a voodoo Earth…
